Run Up!

A terrible accident changes everything for athletic Elodie: she's suddenly paraplegic. But she won't give up and practices relentlessly until she becomes the new star of her country's parathletic team.

Elodie is a sporty young woman who loves life. Everything comes to a tragic halt when she is hit by a car: she's bound to a wheelchair for the rest of her life! Totally traumatized, the massive support from her family doesn't help her. Until she decides to become a parathletic runner and teams up with two underdog helpers: coach Isabelle, a grumpy ex-Olympic champion with an alcohol problem, drilling Elodie pitilessly. And Alek, a former one-night stand and failed inventor, building gear just for her. Not only do Alek and Elodie fall in love, but she also succeeds in qualifying for the Championship. Yet, the success estranges her from her team. Will Elodie be able to keep her life from running away from her again?
